Merry Christmas to you, Becky! God bless us, every one! :)


thinking of you and all of our families memories as kids at christmas-
"the broken doll" skit.
peeing your pants, while a scheer tickles you to death.
grandma schneids scratchy kisses & cinnamon rolls.
your mom, bringing loads of gifts to us in a laundry basket.
your sister getting everything, and me playing with it all! her not caring because she's too busy reading her newest archie.
ahhh memories! love ya sis...


merry christmas to you too!!!


Just wanted you to know that you are not alone in your sense about "busyness". I see it and feel the same and have begun to hold back too! I think the Old Testament is really clear about complaining... and working hard. I also can't help to wonder what God thinks when I talk about being busy with perhaps a negative connotation, He has given me this work and He wouldn't give me more than I can handle. He desires for us to live with intention and unfortunately sometimes I am much more intentional when I am busy, not over the top, not in competition with my neighbor, but just doing the day to day things to provide for my family a comforting and relaxed wife, mom, and home. It seems that idleness, for me, is a snag that will trip me up time and time again. Thank you for staying authentic!

Have a very joy filled Christmas!



I totally agree with you about the complaints of being too busy currently! We all have our commitments, responsibilities and obligations and I think we just need to live each day to the fullest and be thankful we are able to do the things we do. (Phew...that was a long sentence!) Anyway, I just wanted to wish you and your family a truly blessed Christmas!


Merry Christmas Becky!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I too agree with the busy talk........we all have the same amount of time, it's how we choose to use it. Sure there are those hectic days when there seems like too much to accomplish..........but when it becomes's about detatchment from your life.
